Seniors West of the Tetons suspend indoor programming but still lots going on

TETON VALLEY, Ida. – Seniors West of the Tetons, which provides home-delivered meals and other services to seniors in Teton County Idaho and Wyoming has decided to suspend all indoor programming for the rest of the summer.

The board is closely following the coronavirus pandemic news and looking at the timing of reopening. In the meantime, the board and staff are planning events and activities that can be done virtually, while social distancing or with special precautions.

A monthly foot-care clinic will resume but by appointment only. Seniors will be surveyed and given assistance if they want to participate in activities virtually through smart devices or computers. Transportation services also are being considered.

Seniors West of the Tetons are also selling breakfast burritos at the Teton Valley Farmers Market on Fridays. Other fun social activities that can be held at a safe distance are being planned as well.

As before, Seniors West of the Tetons continues delivering meals to seniors who can’t leave their homes, a need that has tripled during the pandemic, and checks in with seniors to see to other needs. Take-out meals for seniors also are available by reservation. If you know a senior who needs meals or other services, call (208) 354-6973.

And don’t miss your chance at a quilt that is being raffled to raise money for Seniors West of the Tetons. The Loose Threads Quilt Guild of Teton Valley created the quilt and donated to Seniors West of the Tetons in return for using the Senior Community Center for its monthly meetings.

A drawing to determine the winning ticket is planned for December.
